syria was a young 45 at the time. he was a computer nerd. he liked the technological toys of the west. he was in touch with the syrian population. he certainly was not a lackey of the united states, and israel. in fact he was supported of hezbollah, amass, iran, and other groups and states, that had a lot of street credibility in the arab world. so they thought it would pass them over. in fact i know that president bashar had mentioned -- commissioned three studies in february and march before the uprising broke out, and all three said, no, it's not going to happen in syria. so he felt pretty confident. i know for -- i can guarantee you that he was absolutely shocked when the uprising really started to seep into syria, particularly, of course, what lit the fire was the arrest and roughing up of the 15 school age children, teenagers, in the southern city of duras in syria. that touched a nerve. that sort of thing happened in syria quite a bit over the years, but in the new circumstances of the arab spring, and the regime didn't under the new circumstances -- it just grew and grew

nation called for condos that is light years ahead in terms of technology in terms of the west and in many ways is a metaphor for the anti-colonialism, anti-imperialist metaphor for african nations in terms of what they can create outside of colonialism. so in my mind, this is an alternative space to see images of black folk that really you don't see anywhere else. nowhere else. i don't see this type of the lactic expression of blackness and maybe other than -- i mean there are not too many black space travelers.

command is not just talking, we're seeing is in classrooms. you can actually use technology to make the class for more human. you mention the skepticism. i think there should be. we just ordered 500 ipads our school. integrate into curriculum or leverage it to make it transform what's going on. there usually are a lot of answers. it is good to be skeptical, but the same time there is reason for hope. >> how do you evaluate the impact? had a you know that they have actually worked? >> a lot of times, i meet people, i don't believe. these kind of girl bar hippie type people. and now i think i appreciate what they're saying. grades, you know, normally when you say people don't like greece to my being touchy-feely, not being rigorous, but actually, they're saying grades aren't rigorous enough. they give this feeling of rigor. when, somewhat arbitrary. depends on how it's measured. but even more than that, when you give grades, especially if you got a c on an exam, you have obvious weaknesses. and so that should be an assessment. you need to improve on those weaknesses. before we move on

[laughter] and we were robbed at gunpoint. but i've since lived here for a long time and raised three children, and it's a wonderful city. i love miami, and i just wondered after you having done your research and meeting all these interesting characters that we clearly have no shortage of here, if it's the kind of place that you think you could live. >> well, i think there's no blanket statement that i think i could make because there's such variety in miami. i don't know these statistics for single mothers and things like that, you probably do, but it's, it's such a complicated, it's really such a complicated subject. but it wouldn't hurt people t
